Presentation on “3D printing generative art by using deformation” (November 20, 2014 6:54 PM)

A preseantation on a unique design and printing methods for 3D printers was given by Yasusi Kanada (the CTO of in 4th International Conference on Additive Manufacturing and Bio-Manufacturing (ICAM-BM 2014, Beijing) (November 12-14). The presentation title was “3D-printing of Generative Art by using Combination and Deformation of Direction-specified 3D Parts”. By using this design method, which is completely different from conventional CAD-based method, simple shapes such as a cup is first defined, and various artistic shapes can be generated by deforming them. The printing method is also unique, i.e., different from conventional layer-by-layer methods.

In this presentation, a video on printing a dish with helical head motion, which was uploaded to YouTube, was shown and the technology was explained.

Dasyn opened a net-shop on 3D-printed consumer products (November 2, 2014 1:58 PM) opened a shop “デイシン Dasyn” in Yahoo shopping Japan. This shop sells 3D-printed cups, dishes, and objects such as empty spheres or deformed spheres. Current products are not suited for real use; however, Dasyn intended to improve materials and production methods to introduce real-use daily products. Dasyn also investigates wider applications of the technologies used for producing these objects.
